The Beginning NO.9: The Chosen One—translated by Raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by Taffygirl13 & lucathia)
Ezart charged into the room. This guy was Ah Ye’s first friend. He had his hair dyed orange red, a tattoo on the left side of his face, and a very muscular physique—When I first heard that this kind of person was Ah Ye’s friend, all I wanted to do was kill him.
If it was not for An Te Qi claiming that it would have a bad effect on Ah Ye if his first friend died violently or disappeared off the face of the Earth, I really would make him vanish without a trace!
Ah Ye has no standards to speak of when choosing his friends, accepting riffraff of any sort. At first, I thought that it was because Ah Ye trusts people too easily. However, all the people I picked for him were adept with the pen and sword, yet he refused to keep them by his side. It wasn’t that he did not want to keep anyone that I sent over though, since he accepted that female vampire and the three bodyguards.
To think that those people all passed the test.
Perhaps Ah Ye has a much more discerning eye than I had originally thought. This way, perhaps I do not need to be too brutal…
The moment Ezart saw the situation in the room, he unclenched his fists and then looked suspiciously at Ah Ye.
Ah Ye’s face was mournful as he said, “Ezart, Charles attacked me.”
“The butler attacked you?” Ezart started at this and asked, “How could ‘that butler’ possibly make a move against you? Besides, he can’t possibly defeat you. Is he simply asking for death?”
Ah Ye froze, and said, “Charles is very strong. He’s even faster than before. He attacked Gē—He attacked me!”
Ezart’s face was still full of suspicion, that bastard! He dared to not believe Ah Ye’s words… Though they were indeed lies.
“Charles said that you are on his side, too?” Ah Ye’s face was sorrowful as he asked, “And even aided in hiding him. Is that true?”
Ezart scratched his head as he said, “I did help hide him, but that has nothing to do with whose side I’m on! Ah Ye, are you mistaken? That butler would actually not stand with you? Is he being controlled by someone again?”
“No, his head was clear.” Ah Ye seemed unable to continue lying much further, and cut to the main point, “Ezart, where is Charles hiding? I’m going to find him to ask him clearly!”
“How would I know!”
Dark Sun’s cold expression flickered across Ah Ye’s face for a moment as he asked, “Are you really on his side?”
“What nonsense are you spouting!” Ezart’s expression changed and he roared, “He’s your butler, not my butler. Why would I stand on his side?”
Ah Ye fell silent for a moment, and then said, “I can’t tell.”
“I can’t tell if what you said was the truth or a lie.”
Ezart’s expression shifted. He stared hard at Ah Ye, and only said two words, “Dark Sun?”
Ah Ye did not reply back, but the look on his face was true to what Ezart had guessed. It was Dark Sun.
“Why did you become Dark Sun?” Ezart slowly retreated, and warily asked, “What exactly have you done to the butler?”
“Where is Charles?”
Ah Ye drew closer to Ezart step by step. Faced with his good friend of many years, Dark Sun’s face did not falter one bit. However, I could hear his anguished cries, the helpless and frail Ah Ye that was hidden behind Dark Sun’s face…
If I simply cancelled the plan and explained everything, Ah Ye would immediately stop suffering now. However, the phrase “thousand years” immediately came to mind. His pain right now was only temporary. For the sake of his thousand years, all of this was required. All of this was necessary…
All for the sake of Ah Ye’s upcoming thousand years.
